Hard to work on
March 15, 2013
This Corsica(1993 w/ 3.1) was bought new by my grandmother. In the 17 years and 103k miles she drove it, there weren't many problems. If I remember correctly, she had a radiator hose leak, the overdrive quit, the turn signal switch smoked, and it would overheat at times. Then the car sat for two years as she could no longer safely drive a vehicle. So I got it running with a thermostat, a Torque Converter Clutch, a turn signal switch, a battery, tires, oil change, plugs, wires, etc. In the one year and 10k miles I have had it, the water pump, alternator, and ignition module went kaput. Most of these items are harder to replace than they should be. At least they are cheap. All in all, the Corsica is a fair vehicle, but when they reach a certain age, prepare to work on them regularly.
